Citric acid

A mild acid that occurs naturally in citrus fruits. It"s the most widely employed acidulent, accounting for about 60% by weight of the total market. In the commercial processing of food the natural acid has now largely been replaced by citric acid produced from sucrose or dextrose by a fermentation process. It can be bought as a white powder.
